This design was created before the days of refrigeration to keep butter fresh on the counter for several weeks.
The lid has a hollow flange where you should pack the butter in.
This lid is turned upside down while serving butter, but kept in the base when not.
In the bottom pot you should add enough water to form a seal with the butter when the lid is in place.
Be sure to change your water every few days to ensure the freshness of your butter.
I threw the two pieces on my pottery wheel using strong white earthenware clay and added a leafy texture to the lid I have finished it in a pretty emerald green glaze which shows up the lid texture nicely.
The whole dish when closed measures 12cm across the lid and 8.5cm high.
The butter chamber is 7.5cm across by 5cm deep. and this one should hold about 150gms of butter.
Dishwasher, oven and microwave safe.
Items will be well packed--I'd hate any of them to get broken!
I am happy to combine shiiping and of course I will post to outside of the UK-contact me for costs.
Thanks for looking.
